    Good headset for the price

    This headset has clear sound and people say that I sound clear through the mic. I've had a few of these mics. The last one I had after about 3 months my friends started telling me that when I would talk my voice would be so loud that it actually would hurt their ears. I exchanged the mic for another one just like it because I like all the pros about it. The current insignia headset that I have now seems to be working fine. I purchased a best buy protection plan in case I have any problems with it. One of the pros I really like is the fact you can hear your tv sound coming from the tv and hear your friends voices through the headphone at the same time. The reason this is possible is because the headset has physical openings that allow the sound to come in from the tv. I really like all the insignia products because they are good quality and don't cost too much money. I would only buy this headset if you can't afford something that costs more.

    Well I'm writing this review because I've had two of these mics (one for my birthday/Christmas and then I bought the other) and both have completely shorted out or something. People can still hear me but I can't hear them, after much tinkering, trial and error and so on, I have found 0 actual long term solutions to fix the problem. If I had gotten a year of service out of at least one of the mics then I wouldn't be so irritated, but, like I said, I've had 2 fry on me within a matter of >6 months. I'm currently combing through my email accounts looking for the receipt because I made a preemptive strike and purchased insurance on $20 mic set knowing this would happen by some divine chance #adulting All in all though, it's a great temporary mic but if you play a lot or put a lot of hours into your gaming sessions when you can play, I would suggest finding something worth the money over this band-aid solution of a product they call a functioning mic set

    With all the $60-200 gsming headsets out now, it's hard to find one that just works. For someone who has a great home theater and doesn't want either headphone style design that blocks out exterior sound or to hear online players screaming at you in both ears, this design works well. It's simple, durable, adjustable, and requires no batteries to charge, simply plugging into the PS4 controller. The earpiece is soft and non-obtrusive, the headband piece is low-profile, and the mic boom doesn't get in the way. The cord is actually a bit too long, but no big deal.

    Well, they plug into a wireless controller so I guess there's some grey area. These aren't great. The audio quality is sub-par and the microphone makes me sound like a robot but they work. I bought them so that I could let me kid use my Sony Gold headphones which are far better than these things. I wish the PS4 would work with ordinary bluetooth headphones but it doesn't and so now you're reading this review.

    The PS4 does come with a single earbud with a mic that can be used for chat, but if you prefer something overhead and aren't looking for any fancy features, this is a nice headset to have. I appreciated having a mic to talk into in front of my face as opposed to on the wire, though if you're looking for something that works on both ears, this might not be for you. It's a cheap fix for those looking for an overhead headset, and it definitely works well enough for that purpose

    For the price this is a great chat only headset. I bought these for my kids and they liked them way better than the original earbud headset that came with the PS4. They're not the best build quality or the most comfortable headset out there, but for the low price that is exactly what we were expecting. Seems like they'll last my kids a very long time. The microphone sounds real clear to other players.

    I broke my earbud mic that came with the PS4 so I ended up getting these awesome wireless, over-the-ear headphones that sound amazing. However, those block out all exterior noise, and sometimes I wanna be able to hear what's going on around me, so I needed an alternative to those headphones and this headset definitely is worth it. It's not the best, but if that's not what you're looking for, then you won't be disappointed. Highly recommend this.

    I've been having it now for well over 4months now & I have nothing bad to say about it. i chose this over the complete headphones headset because I like how I'm able to hear my Spotify, while playing a game online. I'm listening to my music that's coming off of the tv in one ear & listening to my team in the other. I also like how I'm able to mute my headset so I don't distract my team with all the extra noise. Over all great product.

    I wanted a better headset in place of that in ear headset that came with my PS4 but wanted one with only 1 ear and game sound to come out of my TV. This headset fits the bill. I don't use it a lot but when I do game online my friends say I'm crystal clear and easy to hear, and their voices are clear as well. For the price this headset can't be beat.

    Simple Design, Basic Headset, but Good for it's $$

    The design for this headset is really simple, but the audio quality is good (not great, but it's much better than the in-the-ear set that comes with the PS4). I also use mine for work calls, and it's nice to have one ear exposed (I like to be able to hear myself talking). People with kids/other responsibilities might like this over a full headphone option because one ear is exposed while the other is fairly clear and blocks out plenty of noise.

    I like this headset because it sits lightly on my ear and allows me to hear all my speakers clearly with minimal audio blockage to my ear. Its your basic headset with a mute button and volume. Nothing special but does the trick. This is my second pair, the first pair broke, maybe because my young daughter doesn't really take great care of things.

    This was the first gaming headset that I bought for my son. It was complaining after the first week that the microphone didn't work. There is a specific way the mic has to be plugged in. Bought him a new pair where the mic is permanently attached and he seems to be doing better with them.

    It has everything you would need in the simple affordable headset to where all you need to do is chat. Plug into your controller and off you go! Why spend $400 on a headset that will go dead on you after a couple hours of playing or is fragile made out of flimsy plastic plus when it's no better than a nice sound bar and this chat mic headset

    My husband has the $200 turtle beach or whatever they're called... He says that this headset works great, he feels it's even more comfortable than the pricey computer earphones, and way better than the free earbud that comes with the PS4...he is so happy with these earphones, if a friend asks for a recommendation once they get fed up with the earbud we will suggest Insignia's headset. And the price was right on.

    This Insignia - Wired Mono On-the-ear Chat Headset for PlayStation 4 is excellent for gamers of all levels. It provides hands-free, crystal clear two-way communication for an uninterrupted online gaming experience. I'd definitely recommend purchasing two, just to have a backup. This is my second time purchasing this item and I'm totally happy with its overall performance.

    I did not plan on spending much money on a headset for my PS4. It has the best features and quality of sound for general communication. This does exactly what it's supposed to do and the adjustable mic feature allows users to wear comfortably on left or right ear. The wired microphone allows for better placement of boom away from nose and mouth for the fat boys that breathe heavily.

    These bad boys helped me win over 100 games of fortnite with my homies in squads. Before I got these, I couldn't hear an enemy if they were two inches from me. With these bad boys I can hear a needle drop from half a map away. Would recommend for the price and epic sound quality.

    I'm not a pro-gamer, so something simple like this headset was perfect for me and my sister to communicate with each other in our games when we weren't physically together. Easy plug in to the controller and easy use. The connection can sometimes be delayed or cut out but for the price and for the simple use it hasn't interfered with anything.

    Not bad for temporary mic

    I have a couple beats and other headsets that didn't work without sony so these were decent replacements for my PS4. I'm not a fan of the PS4 gold headset because they tend to get hot and hurt my ears also. These do tend to slide of fluff and get in the way sometimes and also the hearing isn't great so I only recommend as a temporary headset.

    This works way better than the stock ear bud mic that comes with the PlayStation. I was having trouble with people being able to hear me before but no longer have that issue after buying this. It picks up my voice easily and I don't have to speak loud for others to hear me. It's cheap and worth buying if your on a budget.
